This lawyer fights in more than the courtroom
2 February 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Looking very much like a pilot for TV series Legal Action casts Eric Close as an action hero type lawyer who when we meet him has a 39 case winning streak when his ex-wife Tanya Clarke calls on him for a freebie. Her brother who has been a bad boy all his life is accused of murdering the District Attorney and it looks like he was nailed at the courthouse with murder weapon in hand. Kevin Sizemore is looking guilty as sin.

Nevertheless Close takes the case and even hires an investigator, an old reprobate played by Nick Searcy.

Behind all the villainy is a really scary dude replete with Scottish accent played by Tommy Flanagan. But Close is a man who does believe in out of court settlements when he can get them. The settlement is most definitely out of court and in the tradition of the old west.

This might get picked up as a series. Nothing great but I've seen worse made into a series.
